Every Intellectual property at Google’s doorstep?

To me sounds like Google is ready to buy any intellectual property they find useful for their stack. Now they bought JotSpot. I had thought that with Writely, it will be enough for Google to build their own Intellctual property around it and build a classic application. However it looks like every valuable Intellecutal propery is knocking Google’s door. What might be the reason?

I think Google is at the juncture where Microsoft was when it was building up stacks to launch Office suite buying from every possible solution provider to build Word, Excel or other Office products. Rather than spending huge R&D upfront to build such subsystems, they are getting pieces to stich them for the final product.

While writing this, I find readwriteweb aricle on Elephants and Evolution very interesting because it conveys that Google can’t do everything …therefore hold onto your intellectual property and go solo 🙂 Can you?
